Nice .. some mines are underground ... with possibly separate use on the 
ground itself.
As far as artificial oyster beds (the ones humans use to 'farm' oysters) 
... these as so close to the surface I'd not bother with a layer, there 
is no other use above these as far as I am aware, at least not in my 
part of the world.

So .. anyone against redefining 'landuse' to include water?
